It is worth mentioning that the name Velite is not new for the Buick brand. Thus, in 2004, as part of "The New York International Auto Show", the company introduced the Velite convertible concept. Now, almost certainly, the Buick Velite Concept is a prototype of the mass-produced plug-in hybrid vehicle for the Chinese market. The car will become a redesigned version of the Chevrolet Volt of the second generation. There is almost no the official information about the novelty. The press-service of the American brand only noted that the Buick Velite Concept is a plug-in hybrid vehicle suitable for charging from the mains. However, some information about the new product has trickled back.
Thus, according to Chinese media, the Buick Velite Concept in actual fact is a harbinger of the new production car. It is to be recalled that the Chevrolet Volt hybrid is not officially sold in China. Earlier, representatives of the General Motors said that they will bring the similar model to China. This suggests that the Volt will come to China under the Buick brand. The design and technical "stuffing" of the concept were developed by specialists from the Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center - a joint partnership of General Motors and SAIC.
